Meadowcroft Wines Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, Napa Valley, California



It is time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley.

Pretty color of dark ruby with a wide reddish rim.

Full bodied and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.

Showing black fruits with cedar, cherry pie, vanilla, leather, spices, earth, chocolates, tobacco, coffee and herbs.

Long tangy finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This 6 year old Napa Cabernet is drinking very nicely now. Showing great complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Nicely balanced and rich. Opulent yet elegant.

Good right out of the bottle, and so much better after 2 in the decanter. As it opens up, more earth notes show up. After 4 hours the nose is so nice, I just kept smelling on it for a long time.

This is a Napa Cabernet with a touch of Bordeaux. Interesting and tasty. Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 10 years.

A great sipping wine to have all by itself. Will also pair nicely with a big piece of steak. Paired wonderfully with Italian prosciutto.

I had it 2 years ago, and it is drinking better now. What a delicious Cabernet.

Aged in French oak barrels for 36 months. A tiny production of only 8 barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

$90.
